A federal court in Massachusetts has upheld a $675,000 judgement on a man accused of illegally downloading 31 songs and sharing them with other people on a file-sharing website.
Joel Tenenbaum was sued by the largest music labels in the U.S., including Sony BMG, Warner Brothers, Atlantic, Arista, and UMG. Tenenbaum had requested for a new jury trial after the music labels were awarded $675,000 in damages.
The ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Rya W. Zobel says that the prior decision was appropriate because Tenenbaum repeatedly ignored warnings while he was student at Boston University that he could be sued for copyright infringement
